If HUI bad passed through Sur ar we are

' The ract that ignorance combined with pig?
headed obstinacy m-ike the lawyers fat is
being amply verified by our present adminis?
tration. The Oreen ville Nhc3 asserts on good
authority, that the fees paid to the lawyers
by the State during the present gubernatorial
IMBI will amount to more than all the fees
paid by the State to law vers since 1876. So
?Beb for economy. The taxes will continue
tr? grow heavier if tbis sort of reform goes on.
Gai. James L. Orr, of Greenville, goes for
Tillman in a manner that meets with our
entire approval. He bolds Tillman op to the
public view aad throws upon him the light
of. truth, backed by indisputable facts. Inj
the haade of Orr,. Tillman's public record be?
comes like a photographic negative held before
a bright' light ; a}} the imperfections and
few lt* that spot the picture are brought ont in
f?M irelief and the public clearly see what
Taiman bas and has not done and what be
promised would be done. We do not wonder
that the comparison is odious to Tillman and j
hit immediate coterie, bat we hope to see Col.
Ocr ateet Cap?. Tillman on the stomp and
rstp" the present administration with some
of the preceding administiatioos so viciously j
maligned by Tillman and other beneficiaries
cC the "dominant element" administration.
The young Sm peror of Oer ma nj keeps bis
oem country ia a contra nal ferment and all
Ecrope in a State of uncertain expectancy.
Oft account of his recent attempt to force the
p-sage af.aa educational bill repugnant to
the am? of his Protestant subjects the most
violent opposition to bis policy has been
? aroused. The Prime Minister Yon Capri vi
aad* the miaisftr of pablic instruction uave
resigned aad the government is in. an unstable
condition. The socialists are takingadvanage
ofibe si marion to promote anarchy.

fpo?ty af theil n: ted States to protect seal

are found in tbs disputed region catching

tba Costed States. . . England pursues ber
usual policy, she will attempt to protect ber
.??abjects, and a conflict may be the result.
3fo one imagines that a war will occur, but
-it is one of me possibilities.
The State of South Carolina now occupies
-a position thal no one with any feeling of
?pride ia the State can eoatemplate without a
feeling of shame md regret. The attorneys
in charge of the case against the railroads
bareapplied ta ?be coarta for an order rt char?
ing thc railroad? ta pay the taxes which they
?doit ta be dae std which they offered to pay
befase the ?9t h of February, and which the
warina* County Treasurers, acting under the
orders of Tillman and Kllerbe, refused to re?
ceive. This puis the State in a humiliating
position as a suitor for what had been pre?
ciously refused, aad at the same time U an
Acknowledgment that the refusal of the taxes
-wai wrong. It is stated by able lawyers that
tba taxes tendered by the railroads could have
bera accented without prejudice to the sup?
posed cage of the Stale againat the railroads
for 0M*p*ya?eot of the taxes placed upon
Shem by arbitrary assessment. In not doing
this the administration bas again displayed,
.to advantage, that larg? store of ignorance,
.which is its most prominent characteristic.
'sro MUNICIPAL PRIMARY.
lt is not right that a municipal campaign
be conducted oo party lines. The two politi?
cal parties have aothing todo with municipal
affaire; ta a Municipal elertion no party
-principle is at stake and il ic decided ly
wrong ts drag the party ia to the
Ciwyaign. There is nothing to be gained
bj making a ansicvp.-il campaign on p?rty
'iiaes aird thee? is mach to oe lost? and for
this Yeason wa are opposed to the proposed
D?mocratie primary to decide apon a candi?
date lor Mayor, We commend the council
for their action innot ordering a primary.
Under the ?rcamstaaces we think it was the
p-ut of wisdom to resciud the call for
the mass meeting tonight as there was
said to bc a movement on foot to pack the
meeting and pot in a ticket that is ob?
jectionable to the mass of property owners
of tbecity. Wheo a ticket had been decided
upon by the mass meeting U would have a
semblance of regularity about it that would
wm to its support Bumbers who would never
vote for the men on it under other ci; cu in?
The municipal matter? are in a badly mixed
condition at present, bat we believe it is tet?
ter to bave the election without regular nomi?
nations, on toe free for all plan, than that nom?
inations should be made by eitker a primary
or ?ass meeting nuder the present condi?
? The convention that will convene in Colum?
bia at'5 o'clock to-morrow afternoon will be
tbs most notable meeting of. representative
men that bas assembled in South Carolina in
a Dumber of years. It will be composed of
earnest, intelligent men, actuated by a sense
of duty, representing every county in the
State, and filled with a determination to per?
form that doty as they are given light to see
it to the extent .of heir ability. With such a
purpose in visw thu result of the convention
cannot fail to be tor good.
A great many people are exercised lo know
what Humes will be suggested for the State
offices. This isa small matter and very little
d?pends upon it. The roost important mat?
ter that will be "the result of the Con?
fution, IS the organization that will
I be perfected to direct the fight for the prin
[ ciplo of-the party, andagainst the coterie
j of office holders who bare essmmed to them
I selves the power to dictate tbe policy of tbe
party, and in making themselves secure in
? this power have violated the fundamental
j principles of the democracy. Organization
I and an energetic campaign ofenlightt?ent is all
I that is needed to defeat the re-election of the
present officials who have destroyed the credit
of tbe State, driven out capital arread y here,
prevented the entrance of capital seeking
investment, driven off desirable settlers,
j crippled the manufacturing interests, made
S the taxes heavier, and brought the State
I into general disrepute at home and abroad.
The great work of the convention will be to
organize the conservative opposition to the
In every community there are persons who
are guilty of acts that violate the present ac?
cepted notions of propriety ; and this is noth?
ing surprising, nor unnatural. It is the ex?
pected, not the unexpected, for human nature
is Bot prone to do good, hence when some
thoughtless, weak or vicious person violates
the proprieties, there would be co unusual
taik or excitement, if there were Dot also in
every community other persons, vicious in
another way, and in our mind more vicious
than those at whom they point the fiager of
scorn. The gossipers are the plagues, the
pests of the world, and for every additional
gossip tbaj a community numbers among its
inhabitants, just one hundred times greater is
the curse that that community has to carry.
What is scandal? It is not the act or the
deed, or even the supposed commission of pro?
scribed actr Scandal is tba talk of the ges
8ipers about what they have heard, supposed,
or imagined some one else to have seen, heard
or supposed. And so the talk goes in .whis?
pers ?nd undertones. This is scandal, and it
! takes a nice discrimination to distinguish be?
tween scandal and slander. In a vast majority
of iostances the terms can be synonymously
applied without a mistake.
In the past the scandal mongers were held
to strict account. When a man talked in
a slighting manser of another he had to be
prepared to take the consequences, when he
mentioned a woman's name disrespectfully he
needed to stand ready to protect his life. It
is to be regretted that the customs of the
past are not followed, for if they were there
would be fewer names blackened without
cause by the wagging of malicious tongues,
there would be fewer innocent persons driven
to wrong, less unhappiness and less misery.
The scandal mongers by their pestilent
talk excite others to acts that they would
never have been gnilty of otherwise, for it is
a phase of human inclination to do that
which is wrong and forbidden. Bearing the
acts of others detailed with great gusto and
secrecy they desire do.likewise or even to
excel those they desire to ?rnmate.
Evil acts do cot constitute scandal, but the
talk, of evil acts is scaodal, and such talk is
( the eauae cfacts more evil and ~~-e numer?
ous than tfac*e talked of. Beware that you
do sot talk scandal for scandal talkers are
pests to any community.
HILL'S SOUTHERN TOUR.
David B. Hill, Senator of New York and
Ex-Governor of tts same State, and the most
anxious and persistent candidate for the Dem?
ocratic nomination for president,ha? just com?
pleted a tour tbrougb the S^uth, made far the
single purpose of bringing himself before the !
public and influencing public sentiment in bis
favor. This tour took in tbe states of Virgin?
ia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia,
South and North Carolina.
At every station where a stop was mads
and a corporal's guard of listeners could be
found, Hill made speeehes, thanking the
people for ?istening to bim and assuring them
of his great pleasure in being allowed the
privilege of spanking to them. In Atlanta,
Savannah, and Augusta fee ciade s 'ops long
enough to attend the receptions in his honor
and make other speeches. When this h s been
said the whole story of the Southern tour has
been .told. In none of the speeches that we
have read dowefi-:d anything that would
commend Hill as a choke for president. Any
of a hundred or more tuen proruioent in
public life, could haye made as good speeches
containing just as much good Democratic
doctrine, and their speeches would have
carried more force with them, as people would
have believed in the speaker's sincerity, while
all of Hill's speeches are mere expressions, and
very few believe in his sincerity.
Hill is a politician and a very shrewd one,
and being such must be a man of more than
ordinary ability of a certain order. Without
this ability and political shrewdness be never
would have been able to obtain the position !
that he has. Political shrewdness and ability
in manipulating election returns are not the
qualifications of a ?aa to be the cc-rsoeratit
President of the United States, and for ibis
reason we do not Sfipport Hill, and a majority
of the democrais of the South do cot favor
bim for the s-ime reason. The people as a
rule admire statesmanship in a man more than
political keenness, and it is more needsd in the
presidential office (baa any other position ;
hence weare of the opinion that ii ill's tour
bas done him very little real good, and he
himself will so discover after a while, if he does
oot already know it.

Best Varieties of Coffee.
Of course one necessity for the making of good coffee is the coffee bean itself. Of
these there are many different varieties, chief among which are those produced in
Brazil, commonly known as Rio coffee; that which comes from Java ; und the Ara?
bian coffee, known as Mocha. Of these, the two latterare roost highly esteemed ;
and a blend, or mixture, of Mocha and Java is considered perhaps better than any
other, although there are many favorite blends and mixtures suited to different
tastes ; one of the must celebrated of those is called Momaja It is composed of the
finest varieties of coffee carefully blended before roaeting, so thal ibe various flavors
are deliciously combined.
It should be fresh male. Fif.een minutes will dissipate thedelicions aroma, and
render it comparatively worthless slopd. Tins is the reason why it is so difficult to
get good coffee at many hotels and restaurants The perso? s charged with the duty
of making the coffee do not like to take the trou'-Ie to m ike sm iU quantities often.
There are many different methods of miking coffre. The simplest of them are good
enough if the coffee is fresh roasted, fresh ground, fresh made. The ordinary French
filtering coffee-pot is perhaps the most convenient but good coffre can be made in
an ordinary tin coffee-pot, pail, or cup, if the foregoing conditions are obaerred as
Grind moderately a large cup or small bowl of C(-ff-e ; break into it one egg witb
shell; mix well, adding enough cold water to thoroughly wet the grounds; opon
this pour one pint of boiling water ; let it simmer (not boil) slowly for ten to fifteen
minutes, according to the variety of the coffee used and the fineness to which it is
ground. Let it stand tbr.*e minutes to settle, then pour through a fine wire sieve
int- a warm coffee pot^ this will make enough for four persons. At table, first put
the sugar into the cup, then ?11 half-full of boiling milk, add your eoffee, and you
have a delicious btrerage that will be a revelation lo many poor mortals who haee
an indistinct remembrance of, and an intense longing for, an ideal cup of coffee. If
cream can be procured so much the better, and in that case boiling water can ne
hddfd either in the pot or cup to make up for the space occupied by the milk as
auuvr; or condensed milk will be found a good substitute for cream.
